The transition from the current European grid infrastructure based on projects to a unique European Grid Infrastructure requires significant changes in the way that the user community is organized and funded. Based on documents prepared by the EGI Design Study project (EGI_DS), users will be organized into Specific Support Clusters (SSCs). There are also proposals to organize support activities like training or application supporting support also into SSCs. In addition, interactions between EGI and commercial entities may also be managed through one or more SSCs.
Participation in this meeting is open. However, the meeting will be geared toward those looking to define, to create, and to organize an SSC for EGI. If you will only be part of a user community served by an SSC, this meeting is probably not for you. All participants must register for the meeting.
To receive emails regarding this meeting and to participate in discussion of the SSC formation, you should join the email list email@example.com. To join this list, provide the list name and your email address in the subscription form. Then either log in with an existing CERN account or create an external CERN account to confirm your subscription.
